Thank you to everyone who joined us for the early morning viewing of Cite Your Sources with an introduction by Layla Gatens, Curatorial Assistant: Engagement. Thank you also to everyone who joined us on Saturday for the zine-making and drawing workshop led by Grrrl Zine.
Forthcoming exhibition events include a talk on Thursday 23 May by Gareth Longstaff, Lecturer in Media and Cultural Studies at Newcastle University, who will draw on his research exploring psychoanalysis and self-representation in relation to El-Sayegh’s exhibition. On Thursday 30 May, Mandy will be joined in conversation by Amrita Dhallu to launch a new e-publication devised as part of Dhallu’s role as Curatorial Assistant: Commissions 2018-19. The publication focuses on the practices of three artists who have contributed to the gallery’s exhibition programme, exploring an intergenerational discourse on the creativity, wellbeing and labour of women artists of colour.
